Ally McCoist's side head to Mosset Park this weekend aiming to avoid another disappointing result on their travels.
Rangers are massive odds-on favourites to emerge victorious in the Highlands and Black is determined to help the Light Blues break their away day hoodoo.
"We can't underestimate Forres tomorrow," said the midfielder.
"They will come out with all-guns-blazing in front of their home fans and will try to make it as difficult as they can.
"You don't look too much at their players, you've just got to focus on your job and prepare in the right way.
"We know all the games are tough, we can't ever go into a game and think it will be easy. The gaffer will have us ready and I am sure he'll tell us that we can't back off them or give them too much respect.
"The most important thing is that we can kick on and get our first away win. Once we have done that I'm sure everything will start to fall into place."
After seeing off SPL leaders Motherwell to book their place in the Scottish Communities League Cup quarter-finals on Wednesday night, McCoist's side will go into their Forres test in high spirits.
They crashed out of the Ramsdens Cup to Queen of the South last week and Black admits the Ibrox squad must have the right mentality for their Highlands trip.
He said: "We know it's going to be tough and they are going to come at us from the start.
"But it's all about how we go about the game. We know we are capable of winning it if we have the right attitude."
Meanwhile, striker Fran Sandaza has been ruled out for the rest of the year after breaking his cheekbone.
The Spaniard was involved in a nasty collision with Well defender Shaun Hutchinson and went under the knife yesterday morning to have a plate inserted in his head.
The loss of Sandaza is another major blow after David Templeton and Andy Little were also sidelined for the club.
